  • PeakOil: the moment that we’ve taken out half of the oil that was out there and times of a cheap and abundant oil driven economy are for ever over. A time of severe growth of demand, declining supply, expensive exploration, higher prices by these three, beyond limits shortages, huge regional and geopolitical tensions. Undersupply of everything we need, and oversupply of shortages. Is this situation this our outlook? Let’s not hope so.

  • In 1978, when the last pages of Age of Inflation were penned, the annual inflation rate was on the rise. It peaked in 1980 at 13.58%, before declining to a low in 1998 of 1.55%. Today, inflation is on the rise again, but this time, the U.S. has new problems as the world's largest debtor. A new generation must cope with the ageless problem called inflation. The answers are different from those that worked during the early 1980's. To understand today's problems and solutions, see Age of Inflation Continued....

The transformation has favored a more educated labor force over blue-collar or entry- level workers, and it has been most pronounced in the Northeast and Midwest, which house the greatest concentration of minority groups (Moss and Tilly, 1991; Kasarda, 1985, 1989, 1990).

  • The significance of these institutional developments cannot be over-empha- sized. They truly revolutionized agricultural production in the United States, and had many positive spillover effects around the world. Indeed, few industries have been as productive and innovative as agriculture during much of the 20th Century. The quantity, quality, and availability of food have increased many- fold, and real food prices have steadily declined. Today, less than 1 percent of the U.S.

  • The sharp rise in funding costs and growing concerns over adequate capitalisation toward the end of 2011 added to existing market pressures on European banks to deleverage. Deleveraging is part of a necessary post-crisis adjustment to remove excess capacity and restructure balance sheets, thus restoring the conditions for a sound banking sector. That said, the confluence of funding strains and sovereign risk led to fears of a precipitous deleveraging process that could hurt financial markets and the wider economy via asset sales and contractions in credit.

  • This morning I have reviewed the outlook, the Federal Reserve’s response, and its policy options for the future should the recovery falter or inflation decline further. In sum, the pace of recovery in output and employment has slowed somewhat in recent months, in part because of slower-than-expected growth in consumer spending, as well as continued weakness in residential and nonresidential construction. Despite this recent slowing, however, it is reasonable to expect some pickup in growth in 2011 and in subsequent years.

  • This study investigates impacts of climate change on water resource in the Huong River basin in the Central Vietnam. Hydrological responses of six climate change scenarios were calculated. Results reveal that climate change would cause significant increase in rainfall in wet season resulting in an increase in river flow. By contrast, the decreasing trend of river flow in dry season is a consequence of the decline of rainfall and increase of evapotranspiration under most scenarios. Sea level rise coupled with the lowering of river stages may exacerbate salinity intrusion.

A further decline in cheque payments in retail business can be expected as the eurocheque guarantee ceased at the end of the year 2001. Although the number and value of...

  • The first-half decline was led by falling local and national revenues, down 6% to $6.98 billion and 11% to $1.4 billion, respectively. These figures are in line with recent survey results showing advertisers are cutting back on spending during the economic slowdown; traditional media like newspapers, radio, and magazines are taking some of the biggest hits. Continuing another trend, radio stations in smaller markets performed much better than counterparts in midsized and larger markets, according to Jim Boyle, a radio analyst with CL King and Associates.

  • As I noted at the outset, when we last gathered here, the deep economic contraction had ended, and we were seeing broad stabilization in global economic activity and the beginnings of a recovery. Concerted government efforts to restore confidence in the financial system, including the aggressive provision of liquidity by central banks, were essential in achieving that outcome. Monetary policies in many countries had been eased aggressively.
